Scopey (6651) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from Tomlinsonís, Inverness. It pours lightly hazy golden with a small white head. The nose is grainy, dull sweetness, porridge, light toast and faint citrus. The taste is crisp, sharp, some astringenncy, plain pale malts, citrus peel, toast, sparkling water and metallic twang with a dry finish. Light-medium body and prickly carbonation. A bit watery. Just what I always wanted.... a malt-driven pale ale. Not.

jamestulloch (1315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from Provenance Wines. Clear pale golden body with a thin white head. Very little carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of grain, lightly roasted malt and lemon. Flavour is similar and lacking in complexity. Low bitterness. More of a Golden Ale than an IPA. Rather dull.

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle from some shop in Biggar [260113]
Light amber, clear, frothy white head
Aroma of soft citrus dull lemony hops, light fruity pale malts
Taste - light sweet pale malts, very soft bit tangy lemony citrus hop, simple flavour, flavour fades in the middle, not much structure
Palate - soft carb, light body, slightly oily. Finish is a tad bitter with a sour tangy lingering note
Overall - Probably designed for easy drinkability, but itís underflavoured for itís abv - itís a bit boring imho. Just OK

AshtonMcCobb (2458) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2013
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours golden with some bubbles and some lace. The nose is mostly malty and not the hop-influenced beer Iíd expected, though there is a fennel note that comes through on the end. The taste is more of the same really - malt with just a little fennel. The palate is light to medium in body and texture with a dry astringent finish. Overall, itís so so!
